    My lab Gus is the baby in the family, 6 years old, and on a diet (Hills R/d) but all my other dogs are seniors. Blue (nearly 16 yo heeler) and Scooby (nearly 14 yo heeler x goldie) are both on Hills Senior and doing really well on it Matt (10 yo German Shorthaired Pointer) has always had issues with keeping weight on so he is on Hills Active.

    Won't someone please feed me!

    Auggie has been a bit "off" the last two weeks, so I have spent a lot of time 'searching' and found:

    I have quit giving her dairy as of Sat evening. We have a vet appt. tomorrow and at that time will get the goahead to switch to a high protien, gluten (grain and soy) free kibble.

    My dogs are on the ProPlan Selects. Biggest thing with a senior is you do NOT want to cut back on protein. That will contribute to muscle loss. The heart is the biggest muscle in the body.

    Auggie's vet appt. this afternoon went well. All kinds of blood work done and several tests being 'sent out' along with an abdominal x-ray that looked normal - no tumors glaring back at us. She has been not feeling well for about two weeks and started getting better yesterday and is better than that today, but we kept the appt we had made hoping to find out why she had been so "puney". Most of the 'symptoms' were behavioral, like she had a headache and wanted to be alone and in the quiet. ??? And a very firm, mildly distended abdomen in the evening after 'supper'.

    I should know by early next week if I can make the switch from
    Hundenflocken: 22% Protein, 10% oils over to
    Barking At the Moon: 42% Protein, 20% oils. It is grain, dairy and soy free.

    Sophie ((Born 3/18/1993) eats Kirkland Chicken and Rice. She is really showing her age. Numerous tumors, arthritis, cataracts, deafness. We are giving her pretty much what she wants for treats and trying to keep her active.
